Course Details
The entire course is closed to traffic but please be aware there still may be event vehicles (please don’t run with loud music!) or emergency/Police vehicles. The main rule we want to enforce is that runners are to stick to the left. Local Police would like to ensure the roads are reopened as soon as possible therefore a time limit of 2hrs will apply for 10km participants.

All runners in the 5k run are reminded to be aware that the turnaround is at approximately 2.2km mark. Both 10k and 5k runs start together so 5k runners are urged to be on the lookout for the CLEARLY marked turn around point and not to keep running all the way to UNE!

Km markers: Every km will be marked accurately and identified as either 5k or 10k distance markers.
